The Netgear Nighthawk X8 AC5000 Tri-band MU-MIMO Wi-Fi router is down to $169.89 on Amazon. This router normally sells around $250. It has dropped a couple times to a price around $190, but this price matches one we have only seen once or twice before. It's the lowest it ever goes, too.
This R8300 router is so fast you won't even be able to take advantage of the speed it offers. I mean that. This router uses all the latest Wi-Fi speed standards and Tri-Band Wi-Fi. The four antennas mean a strong signal with reduced interference. It also uses MU-MIMO technology, which is designed for households using multiple devices on one router. If you have a bunch of gaming consoles, tablets, smartphones, and other things using your Wi-Fi, that's the tech you want in a router. The Nighthawk X8 has 4 stars based on 4,391 user reviews.
If you're looking for a budget alternative, the Nighthawk R6700 is a great router and only $80 with the $10 off on-page coupon.
